artist info . . . aka: blah blah blah
Carrin Welch has loved making art since high school, where she attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. She studied at The University of Texas at Austin, Austin Community College, and School for the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, plus many workshops. Initially focusing on Printmaking, throughout the years she has also become skilled in costume design, painting, photography, graphic design, and wood sculpture.
Her largest and most well known project is The Four Rocking Horses of the Apocalypse, which was completed in 2016. She is currently looking for unique opportunities to allow grown ups to experience the childlike joy that an adult sized rocking horse can provide. Other works include a companion series to the rocking horses called Ancestors & Artifacts, and her gun inspired Sneaky Gun Jewelry is available for purchase through ChickaBomb.
Carrin grew up in Dallas, has lived in New York City, Boston, New Orleans, and Nashville. She has travelled all over the US and a bit of Europe. All of those places offered inspiration, but Austin is home, where she lives with her husband Brian. She is a creator = artist, crafter, performer, seamstress, traveller, sometimes troublemaker. After working in the TV & film industry for 11+ years, she recently shifted her focus to creating art, while professionally expanding into media management and marketing.
